It is with great sadness and regret that we mark the passing of our great friend and golfing colleague, Paddy Stuart Trainor.

Paddy was a member of the inaugural committee of Knockfierna Golfing Society in 1991 and brought with him a deep knowledge of the game of golf that his late mother (the first golfer in Ballingarry) had instilled in him.

Through the years, Paddy and his family have been  great supporters and sponsors to our Society and they have kindly made their premises "Trainor's Bar" available to us for meetings and social gatherings for the past twenty seven years.

An aficionado on the rules of golf, Paddy tirelessly gave his time to adjudicating score cards after every outing, keeping handicaps in check, guiding us on the rules when tricky situations arose and entertaining us with his wit and charm at every turn.

He was a true friend and gentleman. We will miss him dearly and we extend our most sincere sympathy to his wife Trudy and the family on his passing.

The Stuart Trainor family would like to thank the members of Knockfierna Golf Society for forming a guard of honour for Paddy at his funeral. We would also like to thank you for your kind tribute to him on the website. Paddy looked forward to every outing and thoroughly enjoyed the banter and the challenges of the scoring! Thank you for your continued support. Trudy, Sarah, Louise and Kevin.
